Help with DataSet.Merge() ?

I'm having problems with the Merge method. I get two tables into the
dataset after merging. One of them has all of the columns I need but
four of the eight fields are null. The tables look like this:

table1:
personid
firstname
lastname
address
city
state
zip
phone

table2:
personid
statusid
eventid
miscid

I need a table that looks like this:
personid
statusid
eventid
miscid
firstname
lastname
city
state

I do get the above table in a dataset after merging. However, the last
four fields are always null. Why is that?

I have keep changes set to false and add schema enumerator.

Also, will the merge know to match personid in each table so that
records are not duplicated?

Thanks,
Brett

Hi, I have an original dataset. It is copied to 2 different forms. Each form adds a new row to the same table in that dataset. When I merge these 2 dataset back to original one, the 2 new rows merge to one! My question is how I can still keep them as 2 rows in that table, not merge to one? Thanks. Li

I have what I believe to be a typical master/detail scenario. I know how to use a transaction on the sql updates, but what about any dataset merges? My scenario goes like this: // call data layer to add new header record, get back auto-inc keys // call data layer to do all updates on detail tables, assign auto-inc keys from header where necessary // call data layer to do update, delete operations, if necessary, on header record

hello, i have a web app that allows users to query our oracle db and produce a dataset of report data. they then have the option to serialize this data and store it in the database. later, then can re-run the report and get fresh data. now, they would like to be able to compare the fresh data to the stored data, getting a break-down of added/deleted/changed rows. on the surface, this sounded plausible -- by deserializing the stored

Hi there, Can anyone explain the following (very) simple scenario. 1) I make an exact copy of my "DataSet" and delete one record from a given table (in the copy) 2) I invoke "DataSet.GetChanges()" on the above copy and pass the results to "DataSet.Merge()" on the original copy 3) If I now inspect the original copy, it shows that the record has *not* been deleted from the table. However, a call to "GetChanges()" does show my

I am trying to get my head around dataset merging but despite a little research I could still use a pointer (or ten). Basically I want to perform an outer join operation on a dataset (created from a file operation) and the resulting sql query based on the contents of said dataset. Effectively I would end up with two dataset tables in my application. If I were writing this to action from two tables it would be thus: SELECT ds.id, db.*
